Following in the Footsteps of Cezanne
Super talented Alex Hillkurtz will be teaching an amazing vacation workshop in the hilltop villages of Provence and while there we will immerse ourselves in all the art the area has to offer including following in the footsteps of Paul Cezanne.
Born in 1839 in Aix-en-Provence, Cezanne made a big impression on the art world and on his hometown where bronze medallions are embedded in the sidewalks in his honor.
And on Day 3 of our fabulous vacation workshop we will make the pilgrimmage to the studio of Cezanne with its easels and fruit bowls arranged as if Cezanne had just stepped out. Of particular interest is the long narrow window he had constructed on the side of his second story studio so that he could move large canvases in and out of the room.
The visitor is left with the feeling that they've just stepped out of a painting themselves.
It's a pretty cool and inspiring experience to walk in the footsteps and visit the stomping grounds of great artists but nothing improves our own art more than actually putting pen or paint to paper.
And under the careful guidance of master watercolour artist Alex Hillkurtz we will take all that inspiration and channel it into our own paintings. It's going to be a super fun and inspiring week.
